Val Morris-Cook

Election statement:

Together we can bring crime down.  As Police and Crime Commissioner I will focus on bringing all of the community together to help the Police in reducing anti-social behaviour, ensure that victims are properly supported and criminals are properly punished.  In these constrained times I have the skills and experience in business to deliver improved results with fewer resources.

As PCC I will: –

  • Work with the whole community to prevent and tackle crime
  • Put victims back at the heart of the policing strategy
  • Ensure that the Police are at the heart of the community
  • Fight the worrying and growing trend of domestic violence and sexual crimes.
  • Make sure Essex is at the forefront in deploying new technologies and techniques to tackle crime.
  • Put crime reduction at the centre of every planning, housing, health  and education decision made in Essex
  • Protect our front-line officers
  • Oppose privatisation of our police
  • Campaign to make sure fines and punishments reflect the true cost ASB related crimes
  • Ensure that bars, clubs and pubs take responsibility for night time drinking or face a licence ban.
    • Have a drying out bus in every town centre along with expanding the SOS and street pastors on Friday and Saturday nights

My unique combination of being a mum, a senior councillor and as a proven business woman makes me the ideal candidate for Essex PCC.

I will not be the voice of the police

I will not be the voice of government

I will be the voice of the people of Essex and talk their language on crime
